About The Greenbank Hotel

Poised on the banks of Penryn River, The Greenbank Hotel is an historic Cornish dwelling dating back to 1640. Its former famous guests include Florence Nightingale and Kenneth Grahame, author of Wind in the Willows.

Featuring aquatic colours and a pleasing nautical theme, each room includes an en-suite bathroom, a television, and complimentary tea/coffee. Some of the options offer a balcony with stunning views over the river and Falmouth Harbour.

At the private pontoons to the rear of the hotel, guests can moor their own boats or take tours along the river. Back on terra firma, soothing treatments and therapies are offered in the spa.

The hotel’s Water’s Edge Restaurant serves award-winning meals throughout the day including Cream Teas and Sunday Roasts. Water’s Edge Bar and The Working Boat Pub are the other on-site eateries.

A mile from The Greenbank Hotel, the National Maritime Museum Cornwall celebrates the county’s seafaring history and, two miles, Henry VIII’s magnificent Pendennis Castle is a must-see.
